Sporting News magazine employs a group of ex-NFL scouts, collectively known as "RealScouts." Most recently, they rated the head coaches in the NFL.
Out of 32 teams, new Browns coach Eric Mangini ranks 25th. First is New England's Bill Belichick and last is Denver's Josh McDaniels.
In the mold of his mentor, Mangini is tough. But he is stubborn and stuck in his ways, which often limits his game plans and hurts his relationships with his players.
The scouts also ranks the top 20 offensive and defensive coordinators. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is the 18th best in the league. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is unranked.
RealScouts also ranks the top players by position. That's not really worth the time to go through each and find all the Browns. Joe Thomas rates fourth among offensive tackles. Braylon Edwards is rated the seventh best wide receiver. Shaun Rogers comes in as the sixth-best defensive tackle.
Neither Derek Anderson or Brady Quinn is rated among the top 20 at quarterback.
